Is travelling to Tanzania during the COVID19 pandemic really possible?
Yes, and we are here to help you organise this trip while respecting health standards. Tanzania is open to tourism and has not closed its borders. Airlines operate several flights a week and the government has a procedure in place for all parties involved to ensure maximum security. There are far fewer tourists than in normal times, which means that you will have a much less crowded safari in the parks, a real pleasure!
What are the entry requirements to Tanzania?
- All travellers are required to fill in an online Health Surveillance Form available at https://afyamsafiri.moh.go.tz/ for Tanzania Mainland and https://healthtravelznz.mohz.go.tz/ for Zanzibar within 24 hours before arrival.
- All travellers are required to present a negative COVID-19 test certificate upon arrival, not older than 72 hours before arrival to Tanzania.
- Depending on the country of origin, travellers might be subjected to rapid tests at points of entry at their own cost. When arriving in Tanzania Mainland by Air or Marine Vessels, the cost for COVID-19 rapid test is 10 USD per person. For Zanzibar, the cost for the rapid test is 25 USD per person.
- Children aged 5 years and below are exempted from both the RT-PCR certificates and COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test.
How can I take my COVID-19 test to go home?
If your destination country requires a mandatory PCR test, then the Mangokili Adventure team will help you get tested in time before you leave. The test can be done in Arusha, Serengeti National Park or Zanzibar. Keep up to date with the latest health information on the website of your embassy or government.
